Amy Lazarus - Sauvignon Blanc · The Unfunded List

December 21, 2015


Amy Lazarus’s passion is inclusion. She works with businesses, philanthropists and other organizations to create welcoming and effective communities and workplaces the norm. Prior to Inclusion Ventures Amy was the executive director of a national network of campus based dialogues and also once founded a neuroscience based leadership retreat. She has, herself been named to numerous lists, awards and fellowships but found time to stop by the booth and talk about the Unfunded List (for which she serves as an evaluator) with Dave over some Sauvignon Blanc. 

Fun fact : Sauvignon Blanc is now the most commonly chosen wine on #WineGrants. Maybe open up a bottle for yourself while you listen to Dave and Amy as they have a wideranging conversation covering topics as diverse as a greek myths, Dave’s childhood in Maine, diversity in film and, as you might imagine, grants.

Unfunded List’s Wine Grants Podcast gathers philanthropists, entrepreneurs, and changemakers of all stripes. Hosted by Dave Moss, who started Unfunded List in 2015 to help make sure that the next generation of changemakers get the feedback and recognition they need to be successful. Our mission is to demystify and open the door to private philanthropy for the general public while providing a platform for our guests to discuss their life’s work.

Unfunded List reviews funding proposals twice annually from small and mid-size nonprofits and social impact startups. The 200+ philanthropy experts on our evaluation committee give helpful and candid feedback about each grant proposal’s weaknesses & strengths. Then we publish the best proposals to our list that we circulate to a rolodex of foundations and philanthropists in the hopes that we can find some funding and partnerships for these amazing unfunded proposals. Unfunded List is always accepting proposals at www.unfundedlist.com/submit-your-proposal. We invite your org to join the Unfunded List awardees and 100+ other projects that our funding evaluators have given feedback to since 2015. Find out more and submit at www.unfundedlist.com.
